DEVILS LAKES -- It could take a drought this spring to avoid another record elevation on Devils Lake.

And that's not likely to happen.


The National Weather Service said Friday that there's at least an 80 percent probability that the lake will reach the 2009 record of 1,451.7 feet.

The chances of it rising even higher are:

- 1,452 feet: 60 percent.

- 1,452.7 feet: 30 percent.

- 1,452.9 feet: 20 percent.

- 1,453.5 feet: 10 percent.
